Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

That would be the AZ vaccine.

Re: Travel Covid requirements

As it stands at the moment, you still cannot cross the provincial borders or Andalucia border.

Re: Vaccine war with EU

This thread has gone way off topic and become a personal slanging match - yet again.

I have deleted a load of posts and will continue to do so if they are off topic or personal attacks.

I would remind posters that personal attacks are a banning offence.

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

Yes, but km 0 deals are entirely different. My wife bought a km 0 VW Up with about 100km on the clock for cash at a huge discount. We wanted to pex her 15 year old Mitsubishi but they weren’t really interested. Strangely though, when we got home there were 3 offers on our answerphone and we sold it ...

Re: Vaccine war with EU

Yes, herd immunity would eventually happen but the death toll would have been huge. Think about Spanish flu and how many that killed before herd immunity kicked in - no jabs then.

If each EU country had handled the vaccine ordering none of this farce will have happened.

There are too many options in Spain. In the UK it’s just THE vaccine.

Re: Covid Vaccinations Spain

Neither of us were asked for any proof of identity. They call your name. That could be different in another locality. This was at the local health centre. If you go to one of these mass vaccination centres in a stadium it might be different. Something with your NIE on it should do if you don’t have ...

You will get Phizer as the second three weeks after the first jab.

Moderna is 4 weeks.

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

All dealers, anywhere, have to make a profit, but there are many ways of doing that. The business models probably vary by country and manufacturer. My perception based on my experience of buying in Spain and the UK is that in Spain, the dealers are less independent from the manufacturers than in the...

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

Make sure you push for the hidden discounts such as free 4 year servicing and extended warranty which often apply to finance deals. You might even get free insurance! They are desperate to sell new cars at the moment. Unlike in the UK the dealers get low margins and have little room to offer discoun...

Re: New restrictions extended??

There has been huge confusion over this as two different organisations are setting the rules. Over Easter central government applied the rules about meetings in private houses which were limited to people living there. This over rode the local rules which allowed up to 4 people to meet inside. The o...

Re: Car Finance V Lump Sum

Because it is. They basically give a real discount if you take the finance option. The dealers are controlled by the manufacturers finance companies and that is the way they do it in Spain. I have bought two new cars in the past 7 years and the finance deals were much better than paying in full. Why...

That was the point I made. It is the 2021 Renta campaign which covers the Renta 2020 declaration. I think they deliberately make it confusing.

No, the current campaign is Renta 2021. This covers the 2020 Renta declaration. The confusion is that someone changed the thread title on some of the posts. Both are technically correct.

Re: Samsung tv issue

Call the Samsung authorised service agent to look at it. It is usually a backlight problem. A friend had a similar problem out of warranty and Samsung reimbursed the price of a new TV.

Re: Travel Covid requirements

You're right Katy - I fell into the same trap, just answering an off topic post!

I am not going to move them all - it takes too long. So from now on lets stick to requirements to travel to and from the UK to Spain.
We have so many Covid threads its difficult to keep track.
